Alt Power 100 2019 Artlyst – Back To Basics




The Alt Power 100 2019 Artlyst is our annual way of acknowledging and thanking all of the recipients for making a difference to the ‘art world’ that we inhabit. Now in its 9th edition, this UK-centric list is a celebration of Artists, Educators, Philanthropists, Curators and art industry insiders who remain the core of our 2019 choices. 

“Art not Money Makes The World Go Around” – PCR

2019 has been a strong year for international events like the Venice Biennale, and a host of memorable and inclusive exhibitions, fairs and biennials.

If you are driven by curiosity and aesthetics and realise, like us that the art world isn’t just driven by money, then continue to read.

A number of new and imaginative enterprises outlined in the Alt Power 100 2019 Lyst will hopefully help bring Art to a broader audience, as well as focus on academic and critical engagement. This in itself is cause for celebration.

The contemporary art world’s most essential influencers and power brokers, many who remain unrepresented on other lists, are noted below.
